FIFTH ANNIVERSARY YPI

Jun 4, 2019

We are looking back! On November 3rd, 2022, the Youth Peace Initiative was invited to attend the 2022 Carnegie Wateler Peace Prize at the Peace Palace

The Carnegie Wateler Peace Prize is awarded every two years by the Carnegie Foundation to an institution or a person who furthers the development of international peace. This year, the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue (HD) – a private diplomacy organisation based in Geneva – was bestowed with the award, in recognition of their hard work in preventing, mitigating, and resolving armed conflicts through dialogue and mediation.

Moreover, on the occasion of the Peace Prize, YPI got to meet Rhea Mahanta, Youth Ambassador of the Peace Palace and winner of the 2021 Youth Peace Prize, bestowed by the Peace Palace, YPI, and the Municipality of The Hague. As a founder of The Peacebuilding Project, last year she was recognized for peacebuilding activities such as the Rohingya Literacy Program.

On March 18th, Youth Peace Initiative celebrated its fifth anniversary!
Over the last year, YPI has been growing and developing as an organisation. We welcomed a new Secretary, a new Programme Officer in The Netherlands, and an extra board member in the region!

Highlights of last year were most definitely the start of YPI’s first year-programme: the Young Leadership Experience, launching the Next Generation Peacebuilders video contest and developing the Youth Carnegie Peace Prize, together with the United Network of Young Peacebuilders (UNOY) and the Peace Palace.

We look back on a great year, and forward to a promising and successful future!
